Víkingur Ólafsson Philip Glass: Piano Works Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
A year ago Philip Glass handpicked some pianists to perform all of his Etudes together at the Barbican in London. Víkingur Ólafsson was one of them and according to the press he was “the highlight of the evening” (Sean and Heard International). The Financial Times claimed: “Best of all was Ólafsson in the supersensitive stillness of Etude 5” Following on in the tradition of their recordings of Philip Glass’ music with Gidon Kremer and Daniel Hope, Deutsche Grammophon has now chosen the music of this founding father of minimal music for the debut album on the label of rising star pianist Víkingur Ólafsson. Ólafsson is an up-and-coming visionary pianist not only of technical sublimity but also of remarkable entrepreneurial abilities. He serves as Artistic Director to both the Vinterfest in Sweden and the Reykjavík Midsummer Music.
